Just post directly in General thread - if needing to move - will move later

I eneded up going over to the coast to get out of the heat and saw the NCLR Guys for about 10-15m -

they were heading back to camp..

Currently the ODSVRA is just about ready to close...

--- Most of the beach was closed this trip..
--- Nearly 1/2 the park is fenced off now...
here is a rough fencing map that I've been keeping and updating...
